Assuming this even happened.
All it takes is one local insurgent to start the RUMOR that a Koran is being burned to whip the uneducated masses into a frenzy over there.
Like in Uruzgan Province last year when the Taliban tried to claim we bayonetted a Koran. That got the locals riled up until we pointed out to the provincial elders the 30 year old soviet bayonet stuck in the Koran wasn't used by either Australian or American forces.
This is the Taliban propaganda wing yanking ISAFs chain and getting a 4 Star General to jump for them.
And yes I know they reportedly found pieces of a Koran. We found pre burnt Korans in raids last year.
Historically, Christians have ignored such carrying-on. I guess they are clever enough to know that burning a Bible or a Koran does nothing at all to alter the truth. Then they go out and buy another Bible. Or Koran. They are sold everywhere.
This is why I don't have any bumper stickers on my truck- because I would have it covered in stickers:
• Burn the Koran
• Deport illegal aliens
• Extirpate Islam
• Deport Amy Goodman
• Joseph Smith was not a prophet you dumbass you.
• Scientology is not a religion, you idiot.
• Have a nice day.
• To Hell with the Rays and the Bucs- don't let the door hit you in the ass.
I do have two window stickers- my beach parking sticker and my NRA sticker.
Of course, there's hope for most of them, noony, but do the math. If only one half of one percent of them are batshit insane and think that allah wants them to kill for him, that's 11 million batshit insane people who think that allah wants them to kill for him. That's why I think we have bigger problem than most people are willing to realize. 11 million people can do a shitload of damage to the rest of humanity. But let's throw on some rose-colored glasses and say it's only one tenth of one percent; that's 2.2 million savages that are up to no good. Therein lies the rub.
I'm just sayin'.
The reason these ragheads get away with this shit is were so fucking hamstrung in the region by limp-wristed liberals back home. I wonder if the guys shooting rifles in the air and throwing rocks at us are the bad guys? Hmmm.
In a better world they get blown up for doing this kinda shit.
